Magnolia is one of the best neighborhoods in Seattle. A penninsula, it is connected to the rest of Seattle by three bridges that span the BNSF switching yards that lie between. A largely single family area, it does sport a zone of large apartment buildings in it's northeast quadrant. The main destinations on Magnolia are the Village, a quaint shopping area, and Discovery Park, Seattle's largest park. Being a steep hill, parts of Magnolia are subject to frequent landslides. However, the greatest threat in Magnolia is petty crime, which is higher here than in many neighborhoods, due to the fact that there is usually only one cop on the hill at any given time.
